[To the Editor of THE SPECTATOR.]

Stit,—I thank you for the answer to my letter. But my point does not seem to have been made clear. Are we not bound to wait for the League's pronouncement before deciding which side to favour ? And if the League is dilatory or inactive, must not we be the same ?—Yours faithfully,

Cade House, Heathfield, Sussex. F. C. GATES.

[No. We have pledged ourselves to favour a victim of aggression rather than the aggressor, but if the League fails to decide who the aggressor is within reasonable time we are free to form our own judgement and act on it.—En. The Spectator.]
